How can I download the 4GB and larger files. My Microsoft OS seems to have limits.

As jonc said fat32 has a 4Gig file size limit. You could get an external hard drive and format it to ntfs that will handle large files.

4GB is the limit for fat32 partitions. What version of Windows do you have?

The partition depends upon the size of the drive in question. The larger the drive the larger the partition can be.

If you need larger partitions for say, music then make sure you have a big hard drive. I get my hp harddrives from: http://www.shopricom.com

I was referring to the maximum file size.

Hi,

I would recommend using an FTP client, like SmartFTP. It's free to download at http://www.smartftp.com/ .

FTP clients are good for large downloads, because if your download gets interrupted, the client will allow you to resume instead of just having to start all over again.
